1995 W140 S500 LIMO (long wheel base)
This car must be one of the best W140 anywhere. I would love to see a better example. I am a Mercedes man through and through, having had countless Mercedes and restoring quite a few, I am not a trader but a middle aged dentist who loves to get his hands dirty. This car has been meticulously maintained. As you can see from the pictures the car is in excellent condition with a low mileage of 67000 miles. The bodywork is almost, barring a stone chip or two, immaculate.
There are no drips or leaks. The engine is smooth and powerful. The suspension is the renowned carpet ride that only the W140 has with no knocks or rattles. Underneath, sills, jack points free of rust. The vehicle is a CAT D as when the previous owner had the car broken into to steal the stereo resulting in scratching on the door and they declared it a CAT D. I have photos of the car prior to the respray and there is no damage to the vehicle. The car was resprayed by ERB motors in Portsmouth as they were recommended on Mercedes forums.
I have supplied below the work that has been done to this car, the file is the thickest I have ever come across.
If you are looking for a W140 you cannot go wrong with this car.
Currently I have 4 Mercs on my drive way plus other lesser Marques, I have got my eye on a W111 coupe that needs a bit of TLC but I need the space.
I have placed many cars on eBay before and I prefer to sell the car to any good offer before the auction ends. I am not after a lot of money; I just want an honest sale. So please feel free to inspect and if comfortable make a sensible offer.
As a lover of Mercs, please do NOT bid/view, as I would not sell, if for any reason you are thinking of parting this car, it is too good and would be sacrilegious.
Thankfully apart from one scammer, I have always met nice people on eBay. So please do not ask questions or bid if you are not seriously thinking of buying this car. my tel no. is 07973365034 please leave a message as I may be in between patients and I will get back to you. Many thanks for looking.
